    Default Paphiopedilum Lynleigh Koopowitz



    Hi everyone -

    Big day of procrastinating and perfectionist tendencies this afternoon. Here are three shots of a really fabulous Paph. Lynleigh Koopowitz that not only has rebloomed for me but gave an almost perfect double-bloom. Actually, it was at peak about 3 weeks ago, and the petals and sepals are now curling a lot more than they did, but I took a zillion shots, the full length with my Nikkor 18-200mm, and the others with my 105 prime lens (much harder to work with, but an incredible piece of glass - better equipment than my level of expertise deserves, but I'm aware of that, and I just keep at it. Anyway, I hope the shots look okay on here.

    Thanks so much, Yew. A big compliment coming from you! And @Zain - same to you!

    It only took about 100 shots to get these 3. I have to get a lot faster at this photography thing!

    That's a gorgeous paph! The photographs are excellent. What light source did you use? Did you use a diffuser of any kind?
